Mashed Potatoes

These mashed potatoes are creamy, garlicky, and totally vegan. This classic side is easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner, but is delicious enough to serve at Thanksgiving or Christmas. 


  • 68 medium yukon gold potatoes 
  • 1/3 cup soy milk 
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1/2 tsp salt  
  • Black pepper to taste 


  1. Peel and chop the potatoes into large wedges. 
  2. Put potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, and boil for 20-25 minutes or until very tender.
  3. Drain the potatoes. 
  4. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or a food processor. If using a potato masher, transfer the potatoes back to the pot, mash until fluffy, then stir in the soy milk, melted vegan butter, garlic, salt + pepper. If you have a food processor, you can add all the ingredients and pulse until combined.*
  5. For serving sprinkle some chives or parsley, or serve with vegan gravy. These mashed potatoes are best eaten fresh, but will keep in the fridge up to 3 days. 


* Be careful not to over process your potatoes, or you will have a potato smoothie!
